The SmallBall Nation of Anti-Goatsack is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Billy with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.366 billion Anti-Goatsackians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keely. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Book Publishing and Information Technology.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (Anti-Goatsack has found 1 easter egg). Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anti-Goatsack's national animal is the Beaner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the oba.

Anti-Goatsack is ranked 3rd in Smallballia and 16,998th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 73 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
